    Just had one of my 52" exmark turf tracers catch on fire Fri now looking for replacement. Has anyone used the new walker super bee yet. I already have a 48" ghs also have the perferator and a 62" deck for it and love it but would love some opinions on the new machine before i buy.
    Thanks

    if you do a search on them you will find a lot of info. There has been quite a bit of talk about them lately and from what i have read it all sounds very good.

    just bought one last week so far have 4 hr on it ........ i like everything about the power unit but the deck scares me a little....... the belt setup is weird ... noisy .... theres a plastic pulley... and no grease fittings... really like it so far.... other than the deck...... time will tell... i was wiling to take the chance .... if you dont feel like being a guinea big.... i would go with something else.....

    I am having nothing but good things to say about this machine. We are at 320 hrs on one and 120 on another and they get run hard. Can put these in places we would never use our TIGERS We will be buying a 3rd one soon...

    will try to get some pictures--we don't ordinarily carry the camera with us but will on next schedule. my son did 2 acres of 2 week field growth in a misty rain this morning with no clumping--just lays it out real flat. moves grass very well--you can square off and move a whole yard in one direction double mowing--i am continually amazed. also part # 2430-10 will allow you to use the other walker decks, including the 74---

    Sounds like we both have the same set up. I don't personally own a super bee. But everyone I know who has bought one, is starting to swear by them. Sorta starting to wish I didn't buy my 62" deck and just had gotten a super bee.
